Hi Ian,

There's lots of stuff in the trac that still doesn't live anywhere else, 
and references to it in the README and docs.

Are we planning to migrate that content anywhere else? Are we planning 
to use trac in future?

I'd be happy to help move stuff off trac wiki to github wiki, if that's 
what we decide is best.
